We give a new proof of a theorem of Zudilin that equates a very-well-poised hypergeometric series and a particular multiple integral. This integral generalizes integrals of Vasilenko and Vasilyev which were proposed as tools in the study of the arithmetic behaviour of values of the Riemann zeta function at integers. Our proof is based on limiting cases of a basic hypergeometric identity of Andrews. 
A family of q-hypergeometric congruences modulo the fourth power of a cyclotomic polynomial
We prove a two-parameter family of $q$-hypergeometric congruences modulo the fourth power of a cyclotomic polynomial. Crucial ingredients in our proof are George Andrews' multiseries extension of the
The Hopf algebra of (q)multiple polylogarithms with non-positive arguments
We consider multiple polylogarithms in a single variable at non-positive integers. Defining a connected graded Hopf algebra, we apply Connes' and Kreimer's algebraic Birkhoff decomposition to
On a linear form for Catalan's constant
It is shown how Andrews' multidimensional extension of Watson's transformation between a very-well-poised $_8\phi_7$-series and a balanced $_4\phi_3$-series can be used to give a straightforward
Arithmetic hypergeometric series
The main goal of this survey is to give common characteristics of auxiliary hypergeometric functions (and their generalisations), functions which occur in number-theoretic problems. Originally
Renormalisation of q-Regularised Multiple Zeta Values
We consider a particular one-parameter family of q-analogues of multiple zeta values. The intrinsic q-regularisation permits an extension of these q-multiple zeta values to negative integers.
Multiple zeta values, Pad\'e approximation and Vasilyev's conjecture
Sorokin gave in 1996 a new proof that pi is transcendental. It is based on a simultaneous Pad\'e approximation problem involving certain multiple polylogarithms, which evaluated at the point 1 are
Multiple (inverse) binomial sums of arbitrary weight and depth and the all-order ε-expansion of generalized hypergeometric functions with one half-integer value of parameter
We continue the study of the construction of analytical coefficients of the ?-expansion of hypergeometric functions and their connection with Feynman diagrams. In this paper, we show the following
A parametrized generalization of Ohno's relation for multiple zeta values
In this paper, we prove that certain parametrized multiple series which generalize multiple zeta values satisfy the same relation as Ohno's relation for multiple zeta values. This is a parametrized
Calculating multiple zeta values at arguments of any sign in a way that is compatible with both the quasi-shuffle product as well as meromorphic continuation, is commonly referred to as the


A transcendence measure for π2
A new proof of the fact that π2 is transcendental is proposed. A modification of Hermite's method for an expressly constructed Nikishin system is used. The Beukers integral, which was previously used

Abel-Rothe Type Generalizations of Jacobi's Triple Product Identity
Using a simple classical method we derive bilateral series identities from terminating ones. In particular, we show how to deduce Ramanujan's 1ψ1 summation from the q-Pfaff-Saalschutz summation.

A Note on the Irrationality of ζ(2) and ζ(3)
At the “Journees Arithmetiques” held at Marseille-Luminy in June 1978, R. Apery confronted his audience with a miraculous proof for the irrationality of ζ(3) = l-3+ 2-3+ 3-3 + .... The proof was
